Yes, that was my original intention to use syslog which I used in the 
past. I can always do that and could redefine my printf's to the 
appropriate syslog output call. However, had been reading about the 
telnetd/pty/shell stuff and thought maybe it would do this too with no 
changes and give me a stdin too with no changes to printf, read etc.
